There are art pieces that I consider ‘exquisite’ because they speak to me. They can be large or small, refined or bold and realistic or abstract. The following pieces from our most recent art show at WAAC, From Nature to Abstraction, I find ‘exquisite.
…the doors open today for “Before and After Paris”
After months of preparation with ordering supplies, painting, framing and advertising, my show is ready for the public to see. I spent hours yesterday, with the help of two good friends hanging the paintings. Barb did a lot of the ladder work and Arlene eyed the levels and curated the placements. We were all very pleased with the final result. For those of you who live close by, I hope to see you at the opening but the show will be up till July 9th.
Here’s a peak of the gallery where every piece you see is mine.
I’m very excited to promote my solo art at the Ruth Upjohn Gallery at the Women’s Art Association in Toronto. I’ve called it Before and After Paris, simply because some of the work was created before my trip to Europe and more after I returned home. Here is the flyer that I designed with the help of my daughter, Andrea.
Most of my work consists of abstract florals and landscapes but I have also included some of my photographs in the form of cards. Here is a quick preview of some of my work.
Sorry I’m a day late. I was having issues uploading my photos yesterday. I you’d like to share some photos of trios, I’d love to see them. Copy my link and paste it into your post. I’ll get a pingback and I’ll be sure to leave a comment.
I am very much drawn to colour when it comes to art but I also love the use of actual textures. It is very hard not to touch art that uses textural materials. At WAAC there is a show on right now, called Collage and there are several pieces with loads of texture. I’m a big fan of Deniz Seker, Janet Potter, Margaret Rodgers and now Catharina Goldnau.
Lucille may be odd looking but she brings a smile to my face as does most of the art that Deniz Seker makes. She is one of the artists that is a member of WAAC and one of the first people that I was instantly drawn to when I first joined the Women’s Art Association. Thanks Deniz for introducing Lucille to us at the Collage Show.
Thanks to Becky B for hosting SquareOdds for the month of February.
